It is a really great day when you can combine your professional skill set with your giving spirit and favourite hobby. Randy, our CTO, and I have had the privilege of doing just that this summer. I have been involved in an event called The BIG SWIM since 2013, and Randy since 2014. This 16KM+ ocean swim from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island fundraises to support a charity called Brigadoon Village, an incredible charity that provides camp programming for children with chronic illnesses and other life challenges. The BIG SWIM swimmers have raised more than $1 million for Brigadoon Village, which translates to around 1,000 campers attending this amazing facility.
Arriving in downtown Toronto was an amazing experience for me as I have not been there before and was very excited to see the night skyline.

We run into a lot of operators and management companies that blend WiFi and Internet into one service and assume it’s all the same thing. This works ok for your home connection if your tech needs are simple; but when running a business it does not cut it. Your guests expect a flawless experience and your business needs a network dedicated to running your business. As a property manager, operator, or developer, you have to look at your technology, and specifically your WiFi/Internet a bit differently as you grow.
It is no secret that your guests are expecting world-class WiFi access when they arrive at your property. We believe that your properties WiFi is more than just an important guest amenity; it’s a tool for you to help gain insights into your guests. We may be biased, but we believe that WiFi analytics allow you the visibility and confidence to best understand and serve your guests. Think of the power that this knowledge provides your team to do their job to the highest standard.
Let’s dig a little deeper into the analytics that we believe are important and why you should care about them:
